The Great American Counteroffensive
This chapter will examine how it came about that the CIA built up a network of secret financial channels and confidential contacts to help youth and student organizations; why it was given responsibility for the International Student Conference (ISC) and the World Assembly of Youth (WAY); and why these bodies were not financed openly by the State Department or by other Western governments. It is clear that finance was badly needed: the ISC and the WAY were close to bankruptcy.
